Cal-Maine clarifies egg recall action

JACKSON — Cal-Maine Foods Inc. has issued a clarification regarding the previously announced voluntary recall of shell eggs supplied from Hillandale Farms of Iowa.

This information does not increase the total number of eggs, which Cal-Maine purchased from Hillandale Farms, previously announced Aug. 20.

Cal-Maine said it immediately contacted its customers to ensure that any eggs included in the recall were withdrawn from the marketplace.

Cal-Maine has voluntarily recalled specific Julian dates of shell eggs purchased May 31 from Hillandale Farms of Iowa and re-packaged by Cal-Maine’s Benton County, Ark., facility, because they have the potential to be contaminated with salmonella.

Potentially affected eggs that were received by Cal-Maine at this facility total approximately 24,000 dozen. The affected eggs were distributed to food wholesalers and retailers in Oklahoma and Arkansas.

None of the eggs were produced in Cal-Maine’s facilities or operations, and the affected product has since passed stated expiration dates.
